Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

We really loved this b&b, which was highly recommended to us by a proprietor on the Big Sur. she wasn't wrong, it is the perfect place to stay for one night. We got the last room, which was a partial view room, but that was fine, you don't book rooms in our opinion, to stay in there all the time! We walked across the road to the beach, and had a lovely walk, then finished the evening with wine on the cliff side, then dinner in moonstone beach bar & grill. All in all a very enjoyable evening.
The place is clean, the food great (afternoon snack of cheese crackers cider and humous, and cute breakfast of cereal and pastries) and was nicer then a lot of hotels we've stayed in.
One thing they need to look at in summer months... The rooms get very stuffy and we couldn't open the windows at night, no air con,,,, so that's something to consider.
We will pass on the great recommendation to others!!

Will keep on coming back to Little Sur! Very large rooms with fireplaces, ocean view, close enough to ocean to lie in bed and listen to the surf at night. Huge bathrooms. Rooms and baths brand new. Price is comparable to others right on Moonstone Beach. Continental breakfast is a bit sparse, but pastries are fresh and delicious. Fresh veggies, crackers, cheese, and dips served every afternoon. Highly recommend Little Sur.

We stayed overnight at Little Sur Inn on our way to San Francisco and found it was cozy, clean, and conveniently located next to an excellent restaurant. The ocean view, a few steps from the inn, was spectacular. It was very peaceful and soothing.
The breakfast was perfect and enjoyed on the deck located outside of the office.
The staff was friendly - checking in and out, simple.
We stayed at a major hotel chain for the rest of the trip but LIttle Sur Inn surpassed them in room size, amenities (refrigerator, microwave), comfort, and of course, location.
Looking forward to staying at Little Sur Inn again.

We have stayed here 3 times in the last year. Have never been disappointed. Tara has always been helpful with restaurants and any info that we have asked of her. The rooms are very clean,bed is very comfortable. Very romantic. You can hear the ocean all night long. This will continue to be our one and only.

Because the Little Sur Inn is such an exceptional value for an oceanfront property, we were unsure of what to expect. To say our expectations were exceeded is a major understatement! We were greeted with a "Happy Anniversary" by the front desk staff member who was friendly, knowledgeable about the area and professional in tone. The property looked even better than brochure photos now that updates have included miami-style balconies and comfortable porch furniture. The location to the Moonstone beach is excellent with the popular Sea Chest restaurant right next door, and Moonside Beachside Grill and downtown within walking distance. We loved Cambria Roasting Company after a brisk morning walk. The afternoon snack is more than adequate - a veggie tray, cheese, and crackers. In the morning we enjoyed the yogurt, granola and fresh fruit with organic coffee. There is no A/C but the room cools down naturally at night and since there are screens in the windows and sliding down they can be left open. The rooms are spacious with room for table, chairs, and seating area. Fireplace was perfectly positioned so it could be seen from the bed. Can't wait to return!

This was a lovely small inn right on the beach. We sprang for an ocean view room and it was fantastic. The room was lovely, the bathroom was unusually nice, the breakfast was good but best of all was the private ocean view balcony and the sound of the waves all night long.

We have stayed here for the past 2 years and always enjoyed it. We were happy to see two problems we had last visit were improved. The internet connection was much improved, and new flat screen TV with good connections to HBO had been installed. This is the best deal on Moonstone Beach.

Room Tip: Room 22 has the best view, 23 or 24 for partial ocean view.

While so many of our other upgradeds have been recognized by our return guests, you are the first to mention our improved Wi-Fi along with the new flat screen TV's. Roughly four months ago we installed a new state-of- the-art Wi-Fi system which has completely eliminated any loss in connectivity for our guests. The flat screen TV's were also installed 4 to 6 months ago. Thank you for staying with us, we look forward to seeing you again.
